‘Tríocha’ – Celebrating 30 years by Seán and Françoise Gilley

Wine label final web

‘Tríocha bliain ag cothú comhpháirtíochtaí’. Over the past 30 years, Business to Arts have enabled, developed and supported creative partnerships between the corporate and cultural sectors in Ireland through commissioning, sponsorship, staff engagement, training and bespoke events. The creation of ‘Tríocha’, in conjunction with Terroirs marks this special milestone and celebrates the achievements of Business to Arts to date.

When Seán and Françoise Gilley of Terroirs realised that 2018 would mark Business to Arts 30th Anniversary they wanted to make a special contribution. Since the early 90’s the Gilley’s have been fervent supporters of Business to Arts creative and professional projects within the art world.

Wine-making is also a form of artistry. Since 1994 Françoise and Seán Gilley have been focusing on sourcing and importing hand-selected wines produced by family-owned properties who respect nature.

The Gilley’s approached wine grower and wine maker Sylvain Morey of Bastide du Claux from the Luberon in Provence. An art lover, Morey farms his vineyards organically and crafts excellent wines in Provence and also in Burgundy. Sylvain was indeed thrilled and proud to produce two special wines for Business to Arts 30th Anniversary in conjunction with Terroirs.

Such a special wine deserves a distinct name. ‘Tríocha’ was an obvious name for the occasion. In a subtle way it denotes the 30 years that Business to Arts have persisted in developing and supporting creative partnerships between the corporate and cultural sectors in Ireland.

With a high proportion of Grenache Blanc and Vermentino from thirty year old vines, ‘Tríocha’ white 2016 displays subtle and fine aromas of honeysuckle and stone fruit which both entice and satisfy. ‘Tríocha’ is delicate, fresh and pristine which makes it a great partner for seafood.

The perfectly ripe berries of Syrah and Grenache noir from thirty five year old vines produced the very attractive ‘Tríocha’ rouge 2016. The palate delivers notes of delicate black and red fruit followed by a subtle layer of spices. Vibrant and luxurious with a silky texture, this wine will pair beautifully with grilled meats and cheese.

‘Tríocha’ was served to guests at the 2018 Allianz Business to Arts Awards on Sept 4th at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.

‘Tríocha’ can purchased for €23.50 at Terroirs in Donnybrook & a percentage of sales will be donated to our Arts Fund. Corporate packages are available and Business to Arts members will receive a 20% discount. Please contact for further details.
